ESPNís Jemele Hill suspended from network for two weeks
 
http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...two-weeks.html

Dis the Pres, no biggie.

Dis Jerry Jones, get 2 weeks.

Nice work ESPN!

You got your priorities in place!

Too bad she hasn't been canned. I won't watch anything she is on.

notorious 10-09-2017 02:23 PM

It's a called an accumulative effect. She was warned on the first shot, and got punished for the second shot.

Who cares anyway?

FREE SPEECH!

She called for a boycott of a bunch of companies that advertise on ESPN.

She was emboldened by her slap on the wrist and doubled down on stupid. It had little to do with criticizing Jones (though ESPN would die if the NFL cratered) and more to do with attacking ESPN's advertisers.

She might as well have started chanting '**** ESPN' during breaks or something. They really had no choice.

Of course this couldn't be a "last straw" type incident. Nope. Would never consider that.

That was my interpretation as well, and she was likely suspended as a cumulative effect.

she'll manage to survive on the 'undisclosed settlement" she'll inevitably get after she files a lawsuit in the upcoming months.

It does make you wonder how that 'scolding' from the higher-ups actually went, doesn't it?

I mean she made it, what, 2 weeks without stepping in it again? Something tells me she didn't get a real stern talking to from her superiors at MSESPN for taking a shot at Trump the first time.

She should realize that by calling out for the public to boycott the Cowboys advertisers she was also biting off the leg that feeds her and I for one am surprised ESPN didn't fire her.

All of this talk about how she felt bad for ESPN and the people with the bad press she caused?

Yeah, right, she didn't feel too bad.

I bet she is gone after this, just a little 2 week break to let the attorneys handle the firing.

At some point, the Disney board has to shit-can Bob Iger over allowing this SJW nonsense to metastasize at ESPN.

Dayze 10-09-2017 02:31 PM

-has sweet employment gig. $
- decides to act a fool.
- likely lose her job (not yet, but possibly)
-unemployed (though likely short term) because......oppressed.
